"WALK & TALK THE DAY AWAY"

Just in time for your summer or fall 2021 staycation, or for the overdue corporate team building outing after a long year of work from home, Killarney Guided Tours is pleased to announce unique, walking tours in and around Killarney and Co. Kerry.  If you are ready to stretch your legs, see some magnificent scenery and learn a little about the area after being cooped up this past year, we are ready to make your day "Your Tour-Your Trail"™.  Having spent decades exploring the ins and outs of spectacular, scenic walking locations throughout Co. Kerry, our fully vaccinated guides look forward to sharing some of our favorite locations with you. 

Every walk will start and end at your Killarney accommodation via our luxurious transportation options, unless you prefer to meet us at the requested location so as to further ensure social distancing.  In order to accommodate every age and fitness level, we've developed three walking levels to help you choose which tour is best for you: Level I (Easy), Level II (Easy-Moderate) and Level III (Moderate). No matter which level or tour you choose, there will be plenty of rest stops for coffee or lunch breaks included in each walk and talk tour. These walking tours, as are all our tours, are strictly private for you, your family and friends*
